((You didn't say "..where mass is accelerated to light speed and forms a singularity..." but you did chide Emmitt a few pages back saying
"E=MCsquared can be solved for mass too."))
The speed of light squred is a constant number used to represent the variation between energy and mass. It does not imply that acceleration is
required to change or represent the other.

((The accelleration to light speed is implied in your reference to virtual mass. Virtual particles travel at light speed. I tried to give you an out
there but you insisted that the mass was virtual.))
Are you suggesting that in all cases there must be an acceleration component in the conversion of energy to mass or mass to energy?

In the last few days I have found your choice of topics quite interesting and from an objective viewpoint I think it collectively answers one of your
own questions, “If time travel is real, where are all the time travelers?” In the past, I have stated that quite frankly, you all scare the Hell out
of me and I’m sure other temporal drivers would feel the same. But now I have an expanded explanation with two examples.
A while ago (on one of the posts), I related an experience I had with my parents while we were driving down a highway. Every now and then, we would
pass someone who was in obvious distress with their vehicle. I was amazed that so many people could pass them by without stopping to help. Their
explanation was fear. The risk of helping someone was too great and with today’s technology, they probably had a cell phone anyway. If they didn’t,
the walk to a gas station would be good for them and teach them a lesson for running out of gas.
The other example is the plight of the homeless. When you pass them as individuals on the street I see the way people selectively choose an alternate
path to avoid them.
Those two examples best define why time travelers do not show themselves. In trying to help you, we put ourselves as great risk and there’s really no
point to it. We know the nature of time dictates that traveling between “exact” worldlines is impossible. Therefore, the only results we will see will
be the ones we stay to see. Since worldlines, outcomes and events are infinite, we have better things to do. When I arrive in the “new” 1998 worldline
on my way home I could easily start all of this again and continue to go through the same conversations with all of the same people. However, I
already know you won’t pay any attention or believe me because we’ve already been through it on this worldline. Besides, I think the walk to the gas
station will do you some good.

((Do most of the people of that time die out, especially ones that currently have health problems?))
Yes, and people are still dying and a great deal of them are passing from CJD. As I said, with my very first few posts almost 6 months ago, I want to
emphasize how devastating this will be. I believe two people are confirmed dead in Colorado from CDJ from surgical instruments. Ahhhh, the power of
cheese. Milk does a body good and beef is what’s for dinner!

((How does time travel affect our future (no pun intended) exploration of the universe? It seems that the greatest obstacles in our way right now are
a matter of energy (propulsion technology) and economic feasibility. It seems to me that time travel technology could neatly takes care of both.))
There is a great deal of debate about trying to use a distortion unit to “travel” to the moon. The experiment would require very precise calculations
that would allow the VGL system to find a theoretical path to the moon on a different worldline. The only problem is there is no way to communicate
with anyone if the experiment should succeed. In other words, it’s possible to do it but only the people on the receiving end could take advantage of

((You say that you wear some kind of flight suit like coveralls when you are time traveling and that you experience 2 g's for 6-8 hrs. How is it
possible to withstand that kind of g-force for such a long period without the use of an anti-g suit?))
The average human can take 2 G’s without too much difficulty. Blackout occurs at about 8 or 9 Gs and redout occurs at negative 3 Gs.

((The universe that you described, that is, one where mass is accelerated to light speed and forms a singularity doesn’t exist.))
As you accelerated to light speed in your machine you and your machine formed a black hole.))
From your perspective as you accelerated to light speed every other object in the universe formed a black hole due to your relative velocities))

((He also said that the mass of the singularities is that of a "small mountain".))
If that were true, the unit could not be moved. I only refrenced the mass of a small mountain in one of our physics conversations. In fact, I believe
I said the mass for the singularities in the distortion unit was much smaller.

((The last time I checked the physics I didn't see an "on-off" switch for a black hole or any other singularity.))
Me neither. I don’t believe I said you could turn it on or off.

((At 2 g acceleration you will be traveling just a tad faster than a Chevy pick-up in short order (about one year to reach light speed).))
This is the one that really disappoints me. Even you should know that Einstein’s thought experiment in the isolated elevator was based on the idea
that the effects of acceleration and gravity are the same. I never said acceleration had anything to do with how the unit operates.

I’m looking at my orders and I don’t see the word vacation on it anywhere. You had my hopes up for a moment. Interesting how quickly a billion-dollars

For more information on black holes and sigularities, I did find this site. www.rdrop.com...
In your opinion, what
is the smallest mass that can form a singulairty? Even Hawking suggested primordial singularities were created at the Big Bang. Were there planets (or
half planets) around to form them then? Based on your ability to draw conclusions about someone’s profile from their typed words I find it hard to
believe you would make such errors in the syntax and meaning of the exact same words. Unfortunately, you have now maneuvered yourself into a position
where I have the last word and our debate must has come to an end. Boomer isn’t a bad name and I sort of like it. Thanks TarBaby.

Me: “By that time, it was pretty clear that we were not going back to what we had and the division between the “cities” and the “country” was well
defined. My father made a living by putting together 12-volt electrical systems…”

My parting thought revolves around something J.C. has been harping on since day one. No, I do not have a secret agenda but I have been paying a great
deal of attention to your worldline. My interaction with you was not a direct mission parameter but it was a secondary mission protocol based on
standing orders given to all temporal drivers. That secondary objective is basically to gather as much information about a worldline based on a set of
observable variables when we first arrive. Your worldline met those conditions. What amazes me is why no one here wonders why Y2K didn’t hit them at
